There were some useful pointers in the video about navigating the sections available for locating your course submissions; bookmarking and organising useful material; contacting your tutor and so on. However, the video did seem to need updating, as I noticed that there were some differences between the website shown and the website as it exists now.
I had already had quite a good browse around the website, watching some of the textiles-related videos, and ones on research; introducing myself on the forum; and exploring some of the resources for my research, etc.
I have now followed the textiles forum and added my blog to the thread of textiles students’ learning logs, which someone is collating. I have also followed some of my fellow students’ blogs as I feel it will be useful to see how other people are interpreting the tasks, and to talk about different approaches and ideas.
